Nick Teddy Foundation announces proceeds from 5K: The Nick Teddy Foundation, in partnership with First Wealth Financial Group of Clinton, has announced proceeds from its second-annual Nick Teddy Fight Against Ewing’s Sarcoma 5K. The foundation will donate $20,000 to the Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative, to be used exclusively for Ewing’s sarcoma research. An additional $5,000 will be used to support local patients and their families.

The Nick Teddy 5K is a celebration of the life of Port Byron native Nicholas Theodore Strub, who died of Ewing’s sarcoma in November 2011 at age 29. The foundation, established in his memory, works to raise money for Ewing’s sarcoma research, to increase awareness of the disease in the Quad-City area and to support local Ewing’s patients and their families. In two years, the foundation has donated more than $37,000 to Ewing’s sarcoma research.

This year’s event was held Sept. 14 in Port Byron. More information can be found online at www.NickTeddy.org.
